Gain easier access to your home or business with a dropped kerb.
Dropped kerb installations provide a solution to help gain better access to both commercial and domestic property’s. They make it easier to park on your driveway or improve on-street parking.
D&N Construction has installed drop kerbs for private homeowners, business owners and property developers. Arrange for a member of our team to carry out a free site survey to discuss how we can help to improve your access.
Applying for a dropped kerb
You will need to apply for a dropped kerb before the construction work can take place. Assuming that the road and footbath outside your property are owned by your local council, you will need to obtain permission from them as the highway authority.
We have experience in applying to local councils and planning departments so we’re happy to manage your planning applications or we can assist and supply you with all the information you need to help complete the forms.
Planning & Installation
Once your planning applications have been approved, we can make preparations to install your dropped kerb or extend the existing dropped kerb.
Our survey report will outline the works that need to be completed. We offer a full service including qualified digger drivers and machinery to excavate where needed. As an approved Wessex Water contractor, we can take care of any drainage systems that need developing or relocating. We use quality lower units and slanted kerbs at each side of the crossing to provide new vehicle access to your driveway and off-road parking solutions.
Dropped Kerb Costs
While it is likely that the pathway and kerb are owned by the council, the person requesting the works is liable for the costs involved. This includes planning applications, the relocating of utility apparatus and the construction cost to install the dropped kerb.
